Baby Unplugged: Blanket

"Blanket snuggled and cuddled so tight..."

A celebration of blankets—their sublime, enduring comfort, their fuzz, even their smell!

From the Baby Unplugged™ series, winner of a Mom's Choice Awards Gold Medal and Creative Child Magazine Book of the Year! Celebrating icons of childhood, rooted in how developing brains work. Kids need and learn best through real experiences, real people, and exploring the real world. Technology can wait. Unplug, tune in, and have fun!



Blanket explores the bonding experience of the baby phase. It has simple pictures with natural scenes that peak an infant’s and toddler’s interest and useful word development patterns. It provides opposites schemes for preschoolers and simple, stylized wording for the early reader. The length is perfect for maintaining interest at all developmental levels.” - Dr. Joe Leanza, MD, MHS, FAAP, Springdale-Mason Pediatrics Associates 
“I am so excited about these books. When you combine the bright colors and the simplistic drawings with the fun rhymes, you’ve got an engaging book that is perfect to read with infants and toddlers... Infants and toddlers love blankets, and this is a way to have some fun with them. If your child doesn’t have a favorite blanket before you read this, they will afterward!” - Terry Doherty, The Reading Tub Family Bookshelf
"This brightly colored board book takes a look at basic blankets in a variety of real world situations and a few, fun, imaginary settings. The rhymes are straightforward and short. The messages and illustrations leave little readers time and incentive to interact with a caregiver on each sturdy page." - A Mama's Corner of the World
